Nearly 40 participants from the greater Washington, D.C. area turned out on Saturday, August 14, 2010 to hear LI founder and president Morton Blackwell present his "war horse" lecture on Handling Negative Information. This special treat was part of a tailored Campaign Communications Workshop that LI's Grassroots Department is putting on in the three corners of Virginia: Northern Virginia, Southwest Virginia, and Hampton Roads (the Norfolk and Virginia Beach area). In addition to Mr. Blackwell's lecture, attendees will also enjoy presentations on The Real Nature of Politics, Communicating a Persuasive Message, and Optimizing Door-to-Door Campaigning. The first of these workshops, here at L.I.'s training facility in Arlington, included staffs and volunteers from local Congressional races, veteran activists (including a veteran of the Reagan administration), and new activists, campaigners, and Tea Party members.
